What happens when you are given the chance to revisit memories and forget unwanted ones? Do you take it?
Here at Iconic Chica we got a chance to get up close with co-writer and director Jose Nestor Marquez and leading lady Aja Naomi King. They told us about memories, technology, and modern sci-fi, as it all pertains to their most recent project, REVERSION. Now playing in select theaters. (Though you can definitely demand it in yours!)
Written by Elissa Matsueda and Jose Nestor Marquez, REVERSION centers on Sophie Clé (Aja Naomi King), a delighted user of the Oubli, a wisp of high-tech jewelry that wraps behind the ear and uses neuroscience to help its users experience their most joyful memories as if they were happening for the first time. In addition to being the head of marketing for the company that makes this revolutionary memory-enhancing wearable device, she is also the daughter of its inventor, Jack Clé (Colm Feore).
Sophie’s most joyful memory is the last day she saw her mother alive, fifteen years earlier. But on the eve of the Oubli’s worldwide launch, a stranger named Isa (Jeanette Samano) kidnaps Sophie, setting off a chain of events that remind us all, you can’t escape what you can’t forget.
Also starring are Gary Dourdan, Colm Feore, Amanda Plummer, and David Clennon.
